aca president doctor anthony hammDr. Anthony Hamm spoke to National University students Monday evening, July 14, 2014, on a wide variety of topics, including chiropractic scope of practice, inter-referrals between medical providers and chiropractic medicine’s role in evolving health care policies. Dr. Hamm, the current president of the American Chiropractic Association, is also a 1979 graduate of National.

An extended question and answer period served as a mentoring session where Dr. Hamm shared anecdotes from his personal experiences in private practice. His stories gave students examples of problem solving, and how relationships between different providers often play out in the real world.  Students asked questions about competing with unethical providers, the value of chiropractic diplomate specialties, and how best to assure chiropractic medicine’s inclusion in future health care reimbursement under the Affordable Care Act.

The event was co-sponsored by the NUHS chapter of the Student American Chiropractic Association (SACA), and included a nuhs students welcome doctor anthony hammraffle prize from the NUHS Alumni Association.

Emerson Ecologics also sponsored the event, providing both dinner and a raffle prize.  Emerson is a firm offering a wide range of medical grade supplements exclusively to physicians.
